Virtual Screening FAQs


Q. Are there viewing restrictions on virtual titles?

GEOGRAPHIC RESTRICTIONS – Shortsfest Film Programs are geo-blocked to the US only, meaning you cannot view our content outside of the US. The LIVESTREAM Q&A sessions will be viewable worldwide, but not the films themselves.


TIME RESTRICTIONS: ALL Shortsfest Programs will be available from 7am MST on April 6th – 11:59pm on April 11th. 


Q. How long do I have to start watching a Program virtually once I buy it?

When you “unlock” the Program, you will see how long you have to start watching below the “watch now” button on the film page. Once you’ve started watching the film, the indicator will change to show you how much time is remaining in your watch window. We recommend you purchase and “unlock” the film at the time you plan to watch for maximum viewing time.



Q. Can I stream Aspen Film Festival films if I don’t live in Aspen?

Yes, you may stream films from anywhere within the US.



Q. How many times can I watch a film?

Each film may be viewed only once, but you can resume at any time where you left off. 



Q. Why can I see a film only once?

This is for security reasons. We don’t want users to pass their login details to other people. If you wish to invite a friend to watch a film, please suggest that they support Aspen Film by buying a ticket or membership. 



Q. Can I rewind?

Yes, you have complete access to the entire program during your watch window.

Setting Up Your Virtual Screening


Q. OK I’m logged into Eventive. How do I stream movies?

To watch on your TV

If you have an Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, or any similar device or smart TV, set your computer or mobile device to “airplay” or “cast” to the TV device. Unlock the program on Eventive Virtual Festival, then set your player window to full-screen using the icon at the lower right.

You can watch content on PCs running Windows 7+, and Intel-based Macs running macOS 10.12+. You can also watch films on Android tablets and phones using Chrome, and on iPhones and iPads using Safari.


If you have an Apple TV or Roku device, you can use our dedicated apps for these platforms. If you have a Chromecast, you can cast to it from Chrome on your computer or Android phone.

Q. How do I connect my Eventive account with the Eventive app on my TV?

From your TV, Download the “Eventive TV” app onto your Apple TV or Roku

Once installed it will give you a code to sync with your watch.eventive.org account

Purchase/Unlock movies using your web browser on your computer, tablet, or mobile devices.

The app can only playback films, not livestream events, chats, or recordings of live streams.

Movies should appear on your Eventive TV app under “My Content” – you many need to refresh the app or select “Browse Channels” and then reselect “My Content” for it to appear.



Q. Who do I contact if I have trouble accessing a movie or there is a technical error with a streaming title?

Check out Eventive’s NEED HELP page for technical information. You can chat directly with someone from their support team to troubleshoot any issues.



Q. I was playing the film but the video looked choppy and my screening was interrupted, what’s that about?

Streaming quality will automatically adjust based on your internet speed. If your internet connection is poor or inconsistent, or if you have several wifi enabled devices connected simultaneously, you may experience problems during playback. If you’re on wifi, try moving closer to your router. You may also try connecting directly to your router via an ethernet cable.

The following recommendations can also improve your system’s potential to view the films:

    • Shut down all other programs
    • Try using the Google Chrome browser (which uses less resources)
    • Restart your computer and only open Chrome to watch the film
    • Deactivate plugins
    • Make sure your Operating System is up to date. If you are using an old device, it might be unable to support the streaming of films.



Q. I clicked on “Watch Film” but the film doesn’t start. Why?
